November 3rd, 2021
On November 3rd, 2021, the recently re-elected member of the Bundestag Ronja Kemmer (CDU) was a guest at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm. For the CDU/CSU parliamentary group, Kemmer used to be both, a full member of the committee for “Education, Research and Technology Assessment” and a deputy member of the committee for “Economy and Energy”.
The energy transition and energy storage are becoming more and more central to politics. The discussion about sustainable energy generation and efficient security of supply often leads to the question: Where will innovative energy storage devices be used in the future and what will they have to do? On November 3rd, some HIU scientists discussed what such a future could look like with the member of the Bundestag from Ulm. After a few occasions, Kemmer came to the HIU for another informal exchange about current progress in battery research.
The exchange was scientifically accompanied by Prof. Dr. Maximilian Fichtner (Director of the Helmholtz Institute Ulm), who provided an overview of current research results and activities of HIU, the Cluster of Excellence POLiS and the CELEST research platform. Also invited were Prof. Dr. Helge Stein (HIU/KIT), PD Dr. Birger Horstmann (HIU/DLR), Dr. Wohlfahrt-Mehrens (HIU/ZSW) and Prof. Dr. Axel Groß (HIU / Ulm University).
